VISIT SURROUNDING COUNTIES
"It may be your ancestor resided in or removed into a surrounding county"
Remember the 5 mile rule ~ Genealogy Tip:
A young man couldn't go courting at night much further than 5 miles or he wouldn't make it back home the next morning in time for farm chores. Five miles was a long way to go on foot, by horseback or by buggy. Young men often married a young women within that 5-mile radius, so look to the tax lists and census for information within that radius that may lead to the maiden name of your female ancestors. If they resided close to the county line she may have lived in neighboring county.
